Climate Change Town Hall - As an individual, it's easy to feel overwhelmed by climate change. And if you're waiting for elected officials to address the dangers of climate change, it's easy to feel frustrated. But, now you've got a chance to help formulate policy that will ultimately combat climate change. This Saturday, Sacramento-area elected officials are listening to the public's ideas about combating and adapting to climate change in a town hall meeting at Met High School. Each person will get two minutes to share his or her ideas for creating a climate action plan for the region.
Paid Job Training - Joining us to talk more about the town hall meeting is Erik de Kok, principal planner for the Sacramento Climate Action Plan, and Mark Hertsgaard, author of "HOT: Living Through the Next 50 Years on Earth". Both will be at the town hall meeting Saturday.
Four formerly homeless women recently graduated from a brand-new job training program offered by Women's Empowerment. The difference with this training? It's a paid program that provides women with skills in fields traditionally dominated by males. We'll talk with one of the recent graduates about the program and we'll hear from the executive director of Women's Empowerment.
Joe Carnahan - Sacramento-born action film director Joe Carnahan has several irons in the fire. We will talk with Mr. Carnahan about the success of his show The Blacklist, his eleventh-hour pitch to resurrect Marvel's Daredevil character with a trilogy of retro action movies, his Mendez Award at the 2011 Maryland International Film Festival, and what goes into making huge action sequences hold the audience on the edge of their seat.
Sound Advice - Capital Public Radio's All Things Considered and Jazz host Devin Yamanaka, being a bit of a wildcard herself, joins us with some baseball-themed jazz songs and a wildcard selection in this week's Sound Advice.
Miles Davis & John Coltrane, "Two Bass Hit" (track 2), The Complete Columbia Recordings 1955-1961, start :40 in.
